Our family theme this year is Love Extravagantly. To keep this topic front of mind all year, I wanted to make something we could use as a simple daily devotional or family dinner conversation prompt.
Because I’m lazy and busy, I had certain criteria to consider when figuring out what to create. Criteria such as…
- easy to talk about
- simple to keep track of
- not reliant on doing it every day
So this is what I came up with….
I broke down the Bible section our theme comes from into individual phrases, prettied them up with a little paper, then hung them from string above our fireplace.
Each phrase has a number attached to it (some have two) corresponding to a day of the month, so whatever day it is, that’s the phrase we choose for the day.
Tomorrow’s phrase is “Love puts up with anything.”
That sentiment just won’t leave me alone.
Considering our 30 day Advent project lasted six days, I have more hope than expectation, but still… It’s hope.
